When the Green Bay Packers take the field on Thanksgiving against the Detroit Lions, they’ll be trotting out their fourth starting quarterback of the season.
With Aaron Rodgers still sidelined, the team has given the nod to Matt Flynn. Flynn joins Rodgers, Seneca Wallace and Scott Tolzien as starters this season.
To put the Packers’ quarterback turmoil into perspective, the team started just three quarterbacks in the previous 21 years. Two of those quarterbacks were Rodgers and Flynn, while the the other was Brett Favre.
The Packers are hoping that Flynn can recreate some of the magic he had in the team’s 2011 regular season finale against the Lions. Flynn set franchise records with 480 yards passing and six touchdowns en route to a 45-41 win.
